savor it

Sometimes when we are outside, for the whole .2 seconds the kids are still & quiet, I savor every single bit of summer. This usually occurs when our crazy Q-bear is sleeping. Despite the fact that it's a very fleeting moment, I don't let it pass by with out a few snapshots and nibbles on baby toes.


Savoring the smiles from her two-toothed grin since the poor thing has other toofers fighting their way through. Collin would say: she's been crying so much you'd think Hello Kitty died. ;)
But we can't complain because she is our most cheerful baby. Ever since she was born, no matter if she's sick or teething, she smiles through it all. I often anticipate seeing the personalities and characteristics they have now evolve or change as they get older.

I use to think Lola was Quincey part II but now that she's a bit older all I see is Lizzie. I think she has the cutest little baby face. Does she look like your baby pictures?

Shot this on my Canon 5D MarkII, 35mm lens, secret manual settings is the only way to get this much light with the sun directly behind her...maybe Collin and I will be teaching how to do this in a photography class on Something Splendid soon?? (wink wink)
